    Default Best Pine fragrances

    I was thinking of getting Pino Silvestre as a good piney cologne. But are there any other decent colognes that also have a good, pine base?
    Thanks

    Ralph Lauren Polo lots of green and wood. Vintage power house is the choice.

    If you don't mind a bit of oud mixed with pine - Aoud & Pine by Montale. Otherwise, Fille en Aiguilles - Serge Lutens

    I concur with the Hippo. For a designer scent, I would recommend tracking down a bottle of Burberry Brit Limited Edtiion from a few years back. It was a winter edition that smells strongly of pine.

    +1 Polo Vintage

    Those are the 3 that come to mind above all others for me.

    Dior Granville is also pretty good.

    Norne is the best I've run across by far, although it's not solely pine. L'Eau Trois is pretty good too.

    My favorite pine scent is ELDO's Eloge du Traitre. If you like your pine dialed to 9, try Blenheim Bouquet by Penhaligon's.

    These four should get you started. I recommend against Pino. Its not as great as reviews lead on. Smell these four then Pino and you will know the syntheticness of Pino.

    If I had to pick one, from all of them, it would be Fille en Aiguilles, although Granville is also pretty wonderful.

    Norne is one of the best if you can tolerate a large overdose of pine...I'm speaking to the older EDP concentration. It is great stuff, just a little too difficult for me to wear. It's just a little too much of a pine overdose for me. Personally, I think the best and most wearable pine fragrance is Comme des Garcons Zagorsk.

    Mine too! Aleksandr is classy, which most pine frags are lacking. Many of the pine frags listed above are just too piney, overpowering, and for the most part one note sambas.
